Founded in 1985, Harvard Chan’s Center for Health Communications was an early and influential leader in public health communication. For example, its early campaign about “designated drivers” is considered one of the first successful efforts to use news and entertainment media to drive healthy behavior.
Amid an ongoing pandemic, climate change, and rising inequities, it’s more important than ever to effectively communicate credible health information.
So Harvard Chan’s Center for Health Communication is rebooting in 2022 with a new, more expansive vision: To define, teach, and share best practices for communicating credible health information to an increasingly skeptical and fragmented world.
Our mission: To prepare public health leaders to effectively communicate critical health information—equipping them to influence policy debates, counter misinformation, and increase the public’s trust in health expertise.
We hope you’ll join us. Get in touch to talk about how.
